    There could be many reasons for a random restart. Has it always done this or just recently? You should first check if it's overheating; see if the computer is excessively warm and/or get a motherboard temp. monitoring program.

    Yeah thats what i think it is! I have a good case though a thermaltake one! But i still think the cpu is overheating cause there is a device on my case! That reads the current cpu heat! And when i got it...it said that the level deosn't go over 90c! So i seen it on the other day and well it was at 86c and then turned off! but would i be right in saying that this is Wayyyyyyyy to high for my computer???
    Maybe its my cpu fan! Hrmmmmm

    86C is VERY hot! The hottest I've seen a computer run stably is around 60C (it was an AMD), and even that is warm.

    Try not to use the machine too much until you can cool it down substantially.

    86C :eek:

    A nice case fan would be good

    Also look inside and check for any dust in the CPU Fan. It collects very easily in there
